Is there any other trend right now that comes close to the buzz that 'location' is attracting? We're excited to offer these powerful features in a tool that anyone can use with a few simple clicks.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 22, 2010
PointAbout's AppMakr platform has seen significant growth since recently upgrading features to include native iPhone Photo Gallery and Push Notification capabilities. PointAbout is also continuing to offer the service free while making it completely open to both Mac and PC users to take advantage of.
Today, PointAbout announced that the platform has received another major upgrade with the addition of GeoRSS capabilities. Content producers can now enable their AppMakr apps with these new features and take advantage of the huge opportunity afforded by location-based services. Content can be easily linked to specific locations and fed dynamically to users' devices, allowing them to see those locations dropped onto the iPhone's native map for navigation or in relation to other points. The upgraded service has already made a splash with outlets such as TechCrunch covering the breaking news.
Sean Shadmand, PointAbout co-founder and the originator of the AppMakr platform said, “This literally adds another dimension to the content our app publishers are able to deliver via apps created on our platform.” Shadmand continued, "We're going to continuously add features within the GeoRSS capabilities. We can't wait to see how our publisher community uses this to create unique experiences for users of their apps."
By using a widely-adopted standard like GeoRSS, AppMakr will work seamlessly with publisher's existing content while users who have not previously created Geo-enabled feeds can take advantage of a variety of third-party tools that append standardized location data to their content.
Isaac Mosquera, PointAbout co-founder and CTO added, "Is there any other trend right now that comes close to the buzz that 'location' is attracting? We're excited to offer these powerful features in a tool that anyone can use with a few simple clicks."
PointAbout will continue to offer the platform for free, while steadily adding features throughout the coming months.
